30-year-old forward Tory Dickson played a total of 9 games for the Club in 2017 after an interrupted preseason kept him out of the side for the opening month of the season.

Returned via the VFL where successive three goal performances had him in line for a senior debut in Round 9 against the Cats where he kicked two goals from seven kicks.  

Collected over 70% of his possessions in the midfield in 2017, up from 56 the year before according to Champion Data.

Stat that mattered:

Laid a season high seven tackles against Geelong in Round 9 in his return to senior football.

What they said:

“It was frustrating. I had surgery in the off-season and it took me a little while to get going.

“There were a lot of niggles back and forth. I didn’t get going until round 7 or 8 and I still found myself struggling a bit and taking a while to pick up the 8-ball and I never got going to be honest.

“I’m not blaming it all on the body, but I feel that’s the first stepping stone and I can get back to my best as soon as my body feels 100% right.”
